A couple tips when picking out a dress to wear to a wedding:
1) white is not ok...unless ok'd by the Bride; and
2) know what kind of wedding it's going to be - more on the fancy/formal side or more on the "let's get drunk and the guys put their ties around their heads" side (FYI: I'm going to the latter this summer)?
For day-of tips, wearing a light colour? Keep the red wine at the table. You wouldn't want a red wine stain on the front of your new dress (although, a little hydrogen peroxide, soap, and elbow grease will take that out the next day - TRUST).
Also keep in mind that wearing a dress is not a must. If you can find something equally appropriate that doesn't quite give you the same...breeze, then wear that too.
